Hey Guys…It’s Time to Come in from the Cold!

As spring brings the warmer weather we’ve all been craving in Chicagoland after months of frost, bugs also happen to come out of their hiding spots.  This can be a particularly pesky time for pests.  Take the fly…please.  When the snow melts animal waste is uncovered and the common household fly goes on the move.

Spiders have spent the winter in corners of your home.  Now they are moving through your house in a quest to get outdoors.  Did you know that ants also hibernate in the winter?   Once the spring spills out its warmth, their movement will gradually increase and the ants will resume their typical work schedule.

All of this means that pests are ready to become, well…pests again!  They will be crawling through Chicago area homes at a pace you have not seen since autumn.  Do you want to watch the migration or fight back?  A Complete Pest Solution has just that…the solution.  Give them a call to eliminate bugs from your castle at (630) 464-1542.

Small Bug…Big Treat.

How much do you know about bark beetles?  Have you noticed thinning leaves, tiny holes in the trunks of ash trees and leafy shoots growing from their bases?  There are roughly 131 million ash trees in the State of Illinois.  What a feast for tiny beetles!  Initially, the culprits may look like tiny, innocent grasshoppers.

Despite their innocent appearance, the emerald ash borer, native to Asia, has already destroyed  20 million trees in nearby Midwest states and led to the quarantine of about 15,000 square miles of land since it was first identified in the United States early in this century, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.

A Complete Pest Solution does not want you to imagine your property without trees!  That is what could happen if the emerald ash borer and other such tree destroyers are not checked at the curb before they destroy your trees.  A Complete Pest Solution is Chicagoland’s bug prevention and removal expert.  Give them a call at (630) 464-1542.
